Band Info


Dublin-born Imelda May has the rare kind of raw talent and timeless glamour that truly illuminates the stage. You don’t just watch Imelda perform, you experience it, "She holds her audience by the scruff of the throat, reaches down and tears out your heart"...

Whether it’s her infectiously unique fusion of rockabilly, blues and jazz, her extensive self-penned repertoire, her sassy burlesque-inspired performances or her distinctive interpretation of classic standards, her appeal is both seductive and undeniable. As such, she is fast emerging as one of the finest vocalists from the UK Roots music scene today.

Winter 2007 saw the release of her 1st solo album ‘Love Tatoo’ to rave reviews. ‘A timelessly truthful collection of intoxicating blend of Jazz-a-Billy delivered in a direct and personal voice - nothing short of captivating’ ‘ (Word Mag). Late November saw Imelda tour with Jools Holland, culminating in her debut at The Royal Albert Hall in December. She’s just recorded various tracks for Jools’s Radio 2 show which will be broadcasted in March.

Inspired by such Jazz greats as Billy Holiday, Dinah Washington, and the undisputed queen of rockabilly, Wanda Jackson, Imelda is forging a contemporary sound all of her own. With a nod to the glory days of old but with her heart and soul very much in the present, this rockin’ little minx belts them out with all the musical force of a veteran Rockabilly wildcat! As one reviewer put it, Imelda has a ‘voice so throaty and powerful, it suggests that this young twentysomething actually lived through the1950s’ (METRO).
